Time and Rest Needed for Runner’s Overuse Injuries: MD Podiatrist

Dan Michaels, DPM says [overuse injuries] tend to show up around the start of summer. “The three most common things I’ll probably see this time of year are plantar fasciitis, something called capsulitis which is more forefoot pain, and Achilles tendonitis,” said Dr. Michaels
He says all of those overuse injuries tend to happen when a person starts walking or running and does too much too soon. “People just get out there and overdo it, more or less,” Dr. Michaels said. So, how do you fix these problems? “The plain, awful truth is time and rest, which is the most impossible treatment plan,” he said.
